Q. Does the library carry textbooks for my classes?
As a rule, the library does not purchase textbooks for the collection, due to their high cost along with their frequent changes and updates. The cost of maintaining and updating such a textbook collection would not be sustainable.
If you want to check to see if the library has a specific book, visit the WKU Libraries website and search using the One-Search Library Catalog (the big search box in the middle of the page). The One-Search Catalog also allows you to find out if your instructor has placed a copy of the textbook on Course Reserve.
